This clause describes the use of the Multiple Frequency Band Indicator (MFBI) lists and the E-UTRA frequencies signalled in SystemInformationBlockType5 by means of an example as shown in Figure D.1.2-1. In this example:

– E-UTRAN includes 4 frequencies (EARFCNs): the bands associated with f1 and f4 belong to bands lower than 64; the bands associated with f2 and f3 belong to bands larger than 64. The reserved EARFCN value of 65535 is used to indicate the presence of ARFCN-ValueEUTRA-v9e0.

– The band associated with f1 has two overlapping bands, B1 and B2 (lower than 64); the band associated with f2 has one overlapping band, B91; the band associated with f3 has four overlapping bands B3, B4, B92, and B93; the band associated with f4 does not have overlapping bands.

– E-UTRAN includes 4 lists in both interFreqCarrierFreqList-v8h0 and interFreqCarrierFreqList-v9e0 and ensure the order of the lists is matching. Each list corresponds to one EARFCN and contains up to 8 bands. The first list corresponds to f1, the second list corresponds to f2, and so on. The grey lists mean not including MultiBandInfoList or MultiBandInfoList-v9e0, i.e. the corresponding EARFCN does not have any overlapping frequency bands in MultiBandInfoList or MultiBandInfoList-v9e0.
